Margaret Jones1

ID#487, b. 10 October 1807, d. 29 April 1886
Carrie (Roberts) Richmond wrote a family history that included details about her grandmother, Margaret Jones.2 The following is an excerpt:

"She was born in Ireland, and came to the United States when she was four years old. Margaret had two brothers and one sister. Her father died on board the ship and was buried in the Atlantic Ocean. After the mother came to the United States, she soon discovered that she could not support her family, so they went away and found another home. Enoch Enix took Margaret Jones and raised her near Morristown, PA, and he also raised her brother David. Her sister was raised at Pittsburgh, PA, and her other brother, Uriah, was raised in Iowa. Enix was captured by Indians."

A word of caution ... as I have not yet used independent sources to verify the info in the box above, I cannot vouch for its accuracy. However, based on information found on Find A Grave that agrees that she was born in Ireland and includes a photo of her gravestone showing her date of birth, the following is what I believe at this time is her birth info:

Father: not yet identified
Mother: not yet identified

Birth date: 10 October 1807
Birth place: Ireland.3

Margaret married Noah Roberts.2

Margaret died at age 78 on 29 April 1886.3 Interred in the Thomas Chapel Cemetery, Wetzel County, West Virginia, her name appears on the gravestone as "Margaret Roberts". An additional inscription reads, "Wife of Noah Roberts."3
